UPDATED: Sacha Baron Cohen Responds To The Motion Picture Academy As 'The Dictator'

For the past couple of days there have been reports that Sacha Baron Cohen was banned from attending this years Oscars.  Word is that this was because Cohen was planning on attending the ceremony as the character 'Admiral General Aladeen' from his upcoming comedy The Dictator (which looks HILARIOUS).

A source told THR that he was not banned and his tickets were delivered to him.  However, it was made clear to Cohen that the Oscars were not to be used as a promotional stunt for his movie.

While doing something drastic during the Oscars could bring some ill will from older Academy members, I wouldn't put it past Cohen to have something up his sleeve.  Perhaps even something that doesn't specifically involve him.  What do I mean by this?

Take a look at his statement from earlier today and we'll discuss it further.

This made me wonder what exatly he means by, "You will face unimaginable consequences!"  Perhaps his army could try to stage a coup of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Zionists.  They form a blockade on Highland or kidnap the host.  Or, perhaps, this is just an empty threat from an angry dictator.

We'll find out this Sunday.


Oscars producers have said that Cohen will be on the Oscars red carpet in character.  Brian Grazer told the tv show EXTRA, "We're thrilled to have him and he'll be on the red carpet as The Dictator."

Hmm.. I was hoping to see a blockade happen.  Oh well, his character could bring a whole new meaning to "photobomb" on Sunday.

The Dictator hits theaters this summer.

What say you?
